TUNE deus meus

Here is a very old (800 years) tune.  It is a hymn I believe, but it still has a Scottish/Irish flavour to it.  It is a very good tune begin with when learning the mandolin.

Find the Deus Meus document attached at the bottom of the page, download it and print it out.  It contains an exercise and the whole tune in notation and tablature.

In addition you can use the 'deus meus slow instrumental' audio file to play along with.  Just download it and play along.  There is a 6 beat count in and the tune is played twice.  You can put it into a free program like Audacity and put it on loop/recycle and it will keep going.


Here I have posted the tune divided into four parts, with each part repeated four times.  This allows you to practise along with the each section.  There is a count in beats of 123/123 before the melody starts.

Part 1 - this is the first 4 bars of the tune repeated four times:

 
Part 2 - this is the second 4 bars of the tune repeated four times:


Part 3 - this is the third 4 bars of the tune repeated four times:


Part 4  - this is the fourth 4 bars of the tune repeated four times:
